Researchers should descriptively articulate the purpose or research challenge in the introduction's final paragraph without utilizing bullet points or numbers.

Research Methods must be detailed enough to enable others to reproduce and expand upon the findings presented. This section details the research strategy, rationale, processes, population, samples, research tools, data gathering methodologies, and data analysis methods. The description must be written in the past tense. 

The results are presented clearly and comprehensively. Research findings might be presented according to the study's progress, addressing specific problem formulations, or using any other relevant approach that highlights the research outcomes. Research conclusions must be supported by empirical evidence. Subheadings may be used to split this section. The document should offer a brief and accurate summary of the experimental findings, their analysis, and the resulting conclusions. 

Discussion part, the authors should analyze the results of past studies and the working hypotheses without duplicating the explanation provided in the results section.
